Arrival Story:
Willow joined my household when I was a sophomore in college. I adopted her from the local humane society. She and I have lived in 9 different places.

My scariest moment with Willow was when she jumped out of a window sill and got her neck caught in the mini-blind cords. Fortunately I was standing in the room with her and freed her immediately. Ever since then, I have been extra careful with the cords on window coverings.

My life so far

Willow is gone

When I came home last night, she couldn't stand. My boyfriend came
over a few minutes later and she began seizing. She was having
trouble breathing, probably due to the fluid build-up that developed
over the past few days. We rushed her to the ER vet and helped her
pass more gently.

Goodbye, my baby girl. You were part of my life for 8 years and were
by my side through through so many phases of life. Rest easy and
whole again, without any pain.


Willow is ill

Willow has been ill for the past couple of weeks. The tests (high protein and globulin levels, ultrasound, cytology, etc) all point at FIP or some other chronic inflammation. Willow also hasn't eaten on her own in a couple of weeks. She had a feeding tube (e-tube) inserted on 9/11/07 to allow me to get enough food in her. She is still very groggy--I'm hoping it's just from the anesthesia not wearing off as quickly as I would like. I want to be able to track my thoughts about her current condition so that I'll remember what I was thinking and feeling about her treatment in the future. Right now, I'm still hopeful that the feeding tube will help, though I'm concerned about her continued lethargy. She had been much more active and alert on Monday when we switched from prednisone to prednisolone.


I feel crummy

Mommy is still trying to find out why I feel so crummy. They did blood tests and found out I was dehydrated. They also did an x-ray, and it looks like I have a tiny kidney stone or mineralization in my kidney. I'm only 8 year old! I'm too young for kidney problems. I really wish Mommy would stop taking me to the vet all the time. I've been there three or four times in the past two weeks! At least when we went today, it was only to get my weight. Mommy was worried I was still losing weight, but this time I stayed the same. On a positive note, she found a food I really liked. She said it was from Trader Joe's.
